I know Julia doesn’t like spending money on important things such as our military.
AUSTRALIA’S navy patrol boats are literally cracking up under the strain of intercepting the surge in asylum-seeker vessels, with one boat now banned from operations and structural cracks discovered in at least two others. Defence has ordered an urgent investigation into its overworked 14-boat fleet amid concerns that the problem could threaten the navy’s long-term ability to patrol Australia’s northern approaches.
So what’s the problem? Indonesian fishing vessels crack up all the time on their way out here. No wonder they just make a call now and have us sail into Indonesian waters to pick them up using our big strong boats.
Cracks in the hulls of our elite Navy vessels now being used (too much) to ferry “undocumented” arrivals?
Heaven forbid an actual war broke out…
We could always put floaties on our tanks.
Glad Julia, after slashing the military budget, is using the rest of the (now-borrowed) money wisely…
